In group mode, type G b c
nnmairix-create-server-and-default-group). This will ask you for all
necessary information and create a
nnmairix server as a foreign
server. You will have to specify the following:
nnmairixserver—choose whatever you want.
nnml:mymail. Just hit TAB to see the available servers. Currently, servers which are accessed through
nnmlare supported. As explained above, for locally stored mails, this can be an existing server where you store your mails. However, you can also create, e.g., a new
nnmlserver exclusively for
nnmairixin your secondary select methods (see Finding the News). If you use a secondary
nnmlserver just for mairix, make sure that you explicitly set the server variable
nil, or you might lose mail (see nnmairix caveats). If you want to use mairix remotely on an IMAP server, you have to choose the corresponding
mairix, but you can also choose something like
ssh SERVER mairixif you want to call mairix remotely, e.g., on your IMAP server. If you want to add some default options to mairix, you could do this here, but better use the variable
nnmairixgroups. Choose whatever you like.
nnmaildir, you will be asked if you work with Maildir++, i.e., with hidden maildir folders (=beginning with a dot). For example, you have to answer ‘yes’ here if you work with the Dovecot IMAP server. Otherwise, you should answer ‘no’ here.
